Kindergarten Week 1 -- We hear with our...

In our first music class this week Kindergarten students discussed the sense most associated with music -- hearing -- and also the importance of silence in music. The kids used the sound catchers, pictured above, to focus in on the sounds around them.

Later these sound catchers became funnels of a different sort when we used them to make apple bottle shakers. It was a great first day!

Homework -- we'll start giving out worksheets next week. For this week the kids should just try to be pay more attention to the sounds around them. How do they blend together?
